A Missing Reptile Is Never A Good Thing…Unless He Tweets About It

29 Mar

The sole reason I stay out of reptile exhibits is because I don’t trust ’em. I don’t trust a reptile as far as I could throw one. They’re sneaky and slithery, and some of them are quite deadly. Like some men I know, but I digress.

When I saw on the Today show that a cobra (yes, a freaking cobra) had escaped from the exhibit at the Bronx Zoo I felt two things: justification and terror. If I lived in the Bronx, I would be a complete basket case. I realize that’s a ridiculous statement, but it’s true.

Anyway, some genius decided they would create a Twitter account as the missing cobra. And folks, it’s hilarious. I encourage you to get a giggle or two from the snake’s posts about his whereabouts in the city. My favorite one so far is, “City may not sleep, but I’m ready to. Oh a chimney! I bet you bragged to your friends about having a working fireplace in NYC. Hi roomie.”

    I like this one…"At the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Temple of Dendur really kicks some asp." LMAO (only because I am NOT in NYC…I would be terrified of living there right now…says the girl who had a roommate with a snake for a pet during college…)

    My roommate/bff in college had a pet dragon/lizard and he went missing for a few days. Needless to say I didn't step foot in the apartment until he was found. I'm not a fan of reptiles either.
